Providing Parents With The Information & Tools They Need To Help Their Kids Grow To Be Happy, Healthy & Respectful

 

Oct 31, 2016

Its The Attack of the Teenage Zombie Episode, or perhaps more accurately, Rescuing Our Teenage Zombie Episode of the We Choose Respect ParentCast. Our guest is Dr David Henderson, author of the fabulous new book My Teenage Zombie, Rescuing the Undead Adolescent in Your Home. Dr Henderson tells us that Zombies are not just found in horror movies, sometimes they’re lying on your living room couch. These are undead adolescents whose psychological and social development have come to a screeching halt. Torn by their yearning for freedom and their fear of surviving the outside world, they have stalled in their maturity, motivation, and purpose in life, hijacked by a helplessness and fear of responsibility. Parents often feel ill-equipped to love, support, and guide them—especially when they may be facing a midlife crisis of their own and battling some of the same issues in their own lives. Is it really possible to escape this “undead” state of being? The answer is YES, thankfully. David L. Henderson explains the parts of a teenage zombie (their brain, heart, and spirit), how they got into this undead state, and how to resurrect them back to life. Using real-life examples of families he has counseled, he describes both their physical and psychological characteristics and offers practical suggestions on how to deal with, and in many cases avoid, having an undead adolescent in your home.
